  • Nice modern art museum to see. Unfortunately the lady staff there are very stiff and do not know how to smile and completely put me off - hence scooted out of there in 15 minutes.  more »

  • I went here on a spur of the moment day when I wanted some culture about Baku, Azerbaijan. I was impressed with amount of pieces they have to offer. to get in I paid 10 Manat and to take pictures it was an additional 5 Manat. I paid as I was on vacation and in a good spirit. I loved this place because of the unique pieces of sculptures. They also had a Japanese exhibit which was interesting and nice. it was nice and quiet, a bit warm inside in some areas but a good experience. you will see a lot of Italian and British art.
  • A must see for art lovers in Baku. Each floor is elegantly housed to art collections from around the world, as well as a vast collection dedicated to Azerbaijan history and culture. Dutch, German, and French art collection is simply breathtaking
